It is a popular place for college students and young professionals. The famed Fremont Troll can be located under the Aurora Bridge. It is also home of the annual Summer Solstice Parade, which features the clothing optional bike ride. Those that reside in Fremont seem to share a common goal; keeping Fremont weird.
There has been a recent surge in new construction townhomes in Fremont. Rentals include a mix of older, smaller apartment complexes along with townhomes snatched up by investors. There are a few newer apartment buildings in downtown Fremont and several others can be found along Stone Way North.
Fremont is a highly desirable area with its proximity to the downtown corridor as well as access to Ballard, Phinney Ridge, Green Lake and more!
